5:35 pm
marty the chair of the librarian and a proponent thank you start with opening comments mr. straidz. >> measure b is a common sense approach times transportation funding for population groith growth muni that over recruited crowded and unreliable san francisco's grown that i 10 percent since 20033 and thank you for the opportunity u muni service is not kept up it pays for the muni service to reflect the growth by measure b will not there taxed it will pay for improvements to the prop money not being used 75 percent will pay for muni vehicles maintenance and for the repair of the fleet and more buses and buses not all of measure b logo
5:36 pm
for the improvements 25 percent important measures to improve safety ordinance 8sdz street to pay for the measures the plan to eliminate traffic fatalities between 10 years we hope the voters agree that you're opening remarks thank you we've recommended in the libertarian party recommends a no vote because we speak about population growth, however, you population groerth in san francisco is abandonment to be more than reasonable and the reason for that is policies nowadays removes the market forces that keepsz the balances even so this will geology for example, our sewer system has not been updated since the impoverishing we need first responders and schools all of those systems not tied to
5:37 pm
population so we have one tied to an unreasonable situation and st. is going to suck up fund from all the others fund there is so much in the pot we need to allocated it as well as we can. >> with that question what benefits will the passage of that bring to the motorists and to motorist i think the primary benefits relies to increase the traffic essentialist for bicyclists and pedestrians for everyone and the measure such as obnoxiously and the defined crosswalks and better signals and really that's the primary benefit for motorists, however, it that benefit the furrier cars on the street the more people riding muni.
5:38 pm
>> how do you respond. >> i want to say because we have this didn't mean we have good planning or efficiency and what we're talking about here in my opinion is would be efficiency and for example, when we allocate money to safety bubbles or designing this and that what other jaend agenda are we talking about are we removing cars together on the street my point efficiency should come first, the ability to get paragraph move in a way to get to work there is no impedes funding is not the issue i think the issue is more efficiency and good planning. >> will this measure increase the frequently of service is low income neighborhoods. >> thank you for your question
5:39 pm
a number of my colleagues and organizations have been working with the mta the muni transportation agency staff in the last year to develop an entity analysis an analysis of how whether there are inaccuracy in how it serves the minority in san francisco it will provide the fund to address some you know my means identified having an equitable analyze that has money to address the certifies that come up this is i see them as working hand in glove are the mta start to professionalism this year in providing resources to he'd what needs to be addressed. >> thank you r with or what are you thoughts. >> do we need another layer of bureaucracies may be make sure
5:40 pm
that muni is seated by the neighborhoods it's aids simple as that we are talking transit crossroads and a completely different design than simply offering muni certifies to you'll neighborhood whether low income or whatever and again, we're not talking about in my opinion funding is not the issue we're just going to add layers of brursz await sufficiency we have muni asking for more money for the past how many years guarantee i don't see improvements you did we have 50 percent on time. >> shouldn't we be working on this. >> it's time for financial
5:41 pm
thoughts ms. berry and we need to view it in the context of the entire city we cannot saw we need transportation yes, we need transportation we also need a whole and i way ray of other services i suggest voters think twice regarding the transportation growth and the transportation because all the other services are going to be left behind doesn't like for example, a very important we're addressing that with other proportion is so we need growth and the growth t is going to be particularly abnormal in san francisco regarding the policies to engendered to remove the connective forces that keep
5:42 pm
everybody everything in balance. >> financial comments were when the voters established the transportation agency the mta was funded by setting up a fund for the transportation this was done to eliminate what they call the infighting and the set budget the system worked well but not quite well enough not to protect us for the cuts in 2008, and 9 the measure b tweaks the formulas to address the growth and keep up with the growth it supports the prourpgs zero for the fatalities in the 10 years and invests capacity while investing in making our streets
